Murder at Classy Kitchens, by J.C. Eaton

Neophyte investigator, Marcie Rayner, takes on a case she should have walked away from — finding out who really killed her ex-husband’s new wife. The victim, kitchen designer extraordinaire, Tawn Hamlin, was found dead in the showroom at Edina, Minnesota’s prestigious Classy Kitchens where she created one-of-a-kind masterpieces for wealthy clientele. And while the employees at Classy Kitchens appear to be devastated by Tawn’s death, Marcie wonders if one of them wasn’t responsible for the blow to the head that killed her.

It seemed everyone had a motive for murder, beginning with her assistants who craved her job, not to mention the demanding clients who were never satisfied. Then there was her husband, Marcie’s ex, Jordan, who recently took out a huge insurance policy on Tawn, compelling the police department to make him a person-of-interest.

Jordan was never truthful with Marcie when it came to his philandering, making her question whether or not he was being honest with her when he denied having anything to do with his wife’s murder.

As Marcie sifts through the clues and discovers a possible stolen art ring, she suddenly finds herself in jeopardy. Clearly, someone wants her out of the way and will stop at nothing to prevent her from learning the truth. Then, a twist she never expected forces her to take a brazen step that may be her last.

Murder at Classy Kitchens is book three in the Marcie Rayner Mystery series.

J.C. Eaton is the penname for the husband and wife writing team of Ann I. Goldfarb and James E. Clapp. A former teacher and middles chool principal from upstate New York, Ann is a seasoned author in her own right, having eight published YA time travel mysteries to her credit. James, a former winery tasting room manager, has focused on non-fiction with informative blurbs on the wine industry. This unlikely author duo found common ground when they moved to Arizona and realized that the community they were living in was the perfect background for murder mysteries. Ann admits that she’s definitely “the detail person” while James is more comfortable with plotline and the big ideas. Running the dialogue is their favorite pastime.
